Most equipment, boilers in particular, have to be installed and commissioned to a manufacturers bench mark to validate the manufacturers warranty. Following the bench mark makes sense as it ensures efficient, reliable operation over the working life of the boiler. Whereas not following the bench mark may reduce the reliable working life of the boiler.
